And here was me thinking it was the year of the monkey. More and more women are going to have an affair in 2016 than ever before… apparently. That’s what IllicitEncounters.com tells us at least.

Whether their prediction holds true remains to be seen, but their logic holds some water at least. They argue that modern technology has made having an affair as much of a hassle-free endeavor as it’s ever been.

And, with your average woman earning more than ever before, she’s less financially dependent on her man, too.

It.. makes some sense, actually.
